at the national level. well, this was the one qualification that i think obama brought to the administration. if you can call it a qualification for being president, was that he was a community organizer. he was a darn good one. absolutely. he was known by his fellow community organizers as the master of agitation. now, this is really important because this is the essence of how he views the world. obama would go into a community and identify an enemy for that community, and he would stove their animosity, fuel it, and really generate an angst, anger, and hay -- hatred. while they are riled up hating or angry at whatever he focused their attention on, he rammed through the agenda. no discussion, no need for discourt, just all based on distract everybody, get them focused on an entity, and ram through whatever you want. well, look, that's what he's done at the national level. for the past four years, there's been no philosophical back and forth. no dynamics free and open exchange of ideas. now, i wrote the book called divider in chief, not because i'm attacking division in politics. i'm all f

to national health insurance issue. every time a ferocious debate. this is socialism, this is terrible. i'm the one hand, it's something all citizens deserve on the other. knowing this history puts the obama administration's success in an extraordinary light. everybody tried it, everybody failed to do some extent or another there've been some successes mainly from republicans. but this is really an extraordinary achievement and our book kind of gives the story of each president and how they try to the national health insurance. we had a hypothesis is the same social science is. health care is the one area that all presidents now. they tend to be a very sickly bunch. presidente president you'd be surprised how many health care problems they had. john f. kennedy got the last rites of the catholic church four times as a missile. his father weeping by his hospital bed as the priest performs the last race of the church. this is a few years before he runs for president. so these have been to understand health than illness. there's so big because secrecy is more than half care. at least that's b
, california. republican line. caller: hi, pedro. first of all, i was stunned that obama was re-elected but i'm pessimistic about the nation's economy and future of it. but for my own personal standpoint i'm optimistic about my situation. i have been unemployed a little over two years and i was under the impression i would get 99 weeks in california. but because of the formula i only got 70-something and it is long gone. but i learned during the last couple of years that california used to be almost impossible to get permanent disability but now there's attorney services advertised on tv to say they won't charge unless you get a reward from disability. and they say there are ways to get it in california that you are probably not aware of. so i'm going monday to check that out. and i think that i'm a republican, of course, but i may join the democrats now. i'm for the welfare society and entitlements. i'm going to get permanent disability and be set for life. host: when you look at how you gauge whether you are worried or optimistic as a whole what do you look at? what factors do you look at?

appointed by obama, when they asked him would this destroy our national security, would it be like shooting yourself in the foot, he said, no it would be like shooting yourself in the head. so the fact we can put that off for at least a time when we try to solve the problem of spending, that's the focus now as you just heard from congressman kemp. we're going to focus our attention on stopping the spending madness in washington. that's the next fight. there were, of course, counter opinions to what you just said especially when it comes to defense. we had an assistant secretary of defense last week who said the defense department was perhaps the best of all the departments to sustain major cuts because they've got a lot of expensive programs that could be delayed such as modern fighter planes that aren't necessarily needed to be designed from scratch. you could go with modern derivations of those. why not cut defense in ways that make sense? >> well, i think the defense department ought to be subject to the same efficiencies as everybody else. but remember last year we decided we're going t
" ] >> that was president obama being interrupted in his speech in july of 2011 at the la raza national conference and activists were insisting that the president who could not bypass congress could do just that, bypass congress just by making his own deportation policy and he did just that. in june of last year, the president announced a new policy called deferred action for child arrivals which allows undocumented workers 30 years older or younger to stay in the united states to get a driver's license or work in the united stat states. it has been very popular with more than 300,000 illegal immigrants lining up to pay the $465 fee and file applications. while the president enjoyed political kudos for the action, the idea was not his. it came from the activists themselves, and the dreamer groups organized 96 legal scholars signing a letter to the white house justifying legal reasons for the president to justify if actions, and they showed him the problem and the viable solution. so what will they come back up next? at the table is matt welsh, and joining us lye from washington, d.c. is janet mage

progress, and it is easy for us as a society to get under the boring national transportation board to solve extremely deadly problems. we still don't know what the obama administration's legal justification for killing combatants including american citizens abroad is, because those documents are secret. we know that colleen mcmann deals with the white house, according to charlie savage and scott shane are suing on behalf of the american drones that killed iraqi men in 2011. there is a memoranda about the strikes. despite the secret justification for killing american citizens might help us to understand the vast and ever seemingly growing exercise that we have been engaged for the last year, but the judge ruled that they did not violate the violation of the americans freedom act. and we know that there cannot be a debate of the constitutionally or the propriety of kiing american citizens unless we know what the white house is making in its favor. back to the table, we have our panel. oliver stone is still with us. i i want to know what you know now, suze kim. >> i know that president obama a
